to be full after a meal. and as an athlete, yes, you get hungry in the afternoon, that's when you grab a protein bar or something else before breakfast. this is a smart mood to start limiting calories. >> these are the guidelines of course supported by the first lady and her let's move campaign, as well. they say in the context of an obesity problem, this is something we need to do. do you think this goes too far the kids aren't getting enough? >> absolutely not. i think this is the road to the right direction. we've reduced so much of athletics and after school activities, our physical education in school. if we can't take control at this point, then our kids are going to -- >> it has to be 850 of the right calories. >> right. and by the way, the kids can have snacks in addition to that, but it's got to be fruit, vegetables, or light milk. >> i think it's a great idea. it's the athletes not the problem. this is one more example of the kids rebelling and i've talked a lot about this shared sacrifice.
nobody wants to give on anything. >> right. >> if we don't solve obesity, we don't solve the health care problem. this is -- if kids can't give up 300, 400 calories a day, shame on them. great idea. >> no kids allowed, air asia popular airline in southeast asia advertising it starting in february blocking off the first five rows of economy saying no kids. anybody under 12, you're not allowed. >> good lord, that's mean. >> well, it means if you have a baby, there's no bassinet holder. >> look, i have kids, but the same way if my kid is screaming in a restaurant, i take them out, you can't do that in a plane. nobody's saying you can't fly on an airplane, i think it's a great idea. >> is it not fair to the parents to go to the back? >> and they're not charging extra for you to reserve those first seven rows. when you get that quote, extra leg room seat or priority rows
they charge you extra. they charge you extra for a pillow and blanket. >> if you want to be a social praia, be a mother with a baby on an airplane. every businessman looks at you as you're coming down, oh god, please not here, not here. >> i have to ask you one question, is it okay to give your kid a little benadryl when you get on. >> yep. >> really? >> no, it's not. >> yes, it is. >> no, but -- legally we're never going to suggest that you give your child a drug on national tv. >> you think this could fly? in this country? or would there be a backlash? >> by the way, even if it's not the first seven rows, it takes the pressure off the parents. >> star, this is like my get real again. >> wait until you have kids. >> no, i just bring my headphones, that's what i do and go into my own zone. i honestly do. >> you're so pure. >> well, i'm 50, didn't have any
kids and kind of want some, so i feel the baby thing. >> i feel bad for the parents. they're not happy. >> so to all mothers out there, if you have a screaming baby on tv and star's on the plane -- >> you can hand him right to me. hand him right to me. >> all right. from kids to marriage, for better or worse? an article lately about prenups and some of the rather odd clauses. one read if husband is rude to wife's parents husband agrees to pay $10,000 for each infraction, another limited the amount of weight that one spouse could gain and another demanded the wife not cut her hair. give me a break. >> why is everyone looking at me? >> i have to tell the truth. the expert quoted in that article is my divorce lawyer. >> so? >> i do kind of have to tell you -- >> i'm sorry, you are the queen of prenups. >> you're doggone skippy, and i
can legally tell you there are certain things i cannot respond to. there was enough in my prenup that a gnat couldn't come through it. >> okay. >> there you go. >> wow. >> identi've been involved in a divorce, and prenup is meant to protect both sides. somehow it has a bad word, but the right prenup is protecting the person with the assets and whoever else to be taken care of. this stupidity of putting on too much weight. maybe you shouldn't be getting married. if each one of you puts on ten pounds -- >> that's kind of always been what people have said about it. it's a marriage, it's not a business contract. >> it is -- >> the stigma is gone? >> it is a contract. marriage is a contract. >> it is, but i guess the criticism has always been -- >> you're negotiating the marriage and divorce at the same time. >> at this point, i was getting married and obviously i'm an older guy coming in with a lot of assets. any woman that would have an issue with it and i'd be saying her, i want to protect you also,
she'd be sending me a red flag if she has a problem with a prenup. >> i would never allow you to get married without a prenup. >> that's not true. >> once and for all, i am not a -- i'm like a dad, you've got to stop this. >> i know, but it amuses me. >> you're a dad player. >> i'm a dad. >> your lawyer wouldn't let you get married without a prenup. >> i wouldn't let me get married without a prenup. >> i wouldn't, period. >> all of you if you get married again, prenup all the way? >> yes. >> absolutely. >> last topic, think before they jump. this is the american academy of pediatrics have come out with more information about how dangerous those big trampolines are. nancy, i mean, would you let a child jump at this point? >> they are fun, they are dangerous. 79,000 injuries, i think, last year in this country. there's no -- well -- >> nancy, legally, if you have a trampoline in your backyard and
somebody comes in who is not even invited and they jump on the trampoline and break their neck, they can sue you. you do not need to have a trampoline in your backyard. >> and you don't need anything extra that could cause problems. >> yeah. >> do i need it? no, don't get it. is it dangerous? yes. is it fun? >> they're not doing trampolines, they're going to school. >> savannah, can i ask ritchie to come and unzip me one last time, please? >> what you do off camera is your business. nice going away present. thank you. coming up next, mood boosters to help you beat the mommy blues. but first these messages. hmm, it says here that cheerios helps lower cholesterol

but i think experiment, color is really the key to mixing prints. if you want to jump in. you'll see on my outfit -- >> uh-huh. >> i've got sort of an orange print on top with brown, but the black is really the repetition and so are lines. >> and that's what you say, look for a common color to tie the outfit together. >> common colors are going to be helpful. you'll see with our lovely model mae. great piece, this is liz claiborne at jc penney and the pants $17 at h & m. the key combo is the burgundy, the red that keeps repeating. this one happens to also repeat the black. >> and the red and the polka dots. >> yeah, there are lots of repetitions in general. but the color's going to be the first key to look for. you see the common color here and you'll see also another example here, the common color is the navy and the purple. so this really helps tie them together, but accessories can really anchor your look. you see the black glasses, necklace, and shoes can sometimes tie it together. you can put a red belt and a red
shoe to give you a point of reference that can bring the whole ensemble together. >> i love it. also talking about scale, you say play with scale, as well. because i guess the size of the print really matters too. >> we hear different rules, and there are exceptions. but the general rule if you're looking to do this at home, look for a smaller print like the leopard, which is a great classic. but don't be afraid of a bolder floral print. something a little bigger will complement that. and you can also think of scale in terms of density. the leopard is a tight print, but if you see this sort of scarf, it's a looser, more sparse polka dot. that will complement the leopard. and here, again, like you said size. black and white is a great color combination that most of us can work with, this is only $12 top from jc penney, again, and the pants, it's a similar print, but smaller. >> smaller, right. >> the scale where it's big on top and small on the bottom, another great key to let one lead. >> okay. and finally over here you say
also allow for contrasting prints, as well. what do you mean by that? >> what i liked about keisha's look, this is a color block skirt we see. it's a big trend right now and some people think i pair it with a solid blouse, right? but you can do it with a print. the color block is very structured and the print on top is abstract. so the rule is opposites attract. go for something like you see in this sweater here. this is a chevron pattern that is structured and the brocade is feminine. just like with a feminine floral print top and a skirt that's more masculine with a straight, structured print. so kind of going the opposite way with squiggly lines and straight lines. >> i get it now. >> all of the combinations on our website, but also tips online. it makes it easy. three simple steps. >> she's going to style us all. thank you. >> coming up next, so-called healthy habits that are not as good for you as you might think.

infections. >> i think i told you somewhere advertised you can get your own toilet cover you can carry with you when you travel in case they don't have them. >> you need to do that, sure, go ahead. just don't squat. >> just don't squat. okay, unless you're in the gym. brushing your teeth directly after meals. i think every dentist i've had in my entire life said you're supposed to brush after every meal. >> we know it's a healthy habit. but brushing right after a meal may not be your best bet. >> why? >> because certain foods, like acidic foods, your sodas, fruits, and tomatoes will soften the enamel on your death, so you erode that. it may be a better idea to wait 30 or 60 minutes after a meal before brushing. or another trick is to mix up a solution of baking soda and water and about a 1 to 8 ratio and rinse after the meal with that. >> that's a good idea. next, moving on. grazing or eating small, frequent meals. people tell you you can keep your metabolism stoked.
>> i call it the calorie trap. but, if those meals are eaten late into the night, then you're really increasing your caloric load, which is preventing weight loss and promoting weight gain. i think a neat little tip is to really think about eating in about a 10 to 12-hour window. if you ate breakfast as your first meal at 7:00 in the morning. then you cut off at about 7:00 in the evening and no more eating after that. >> that's good one. 7:00 to 7:00. good one. moving on to the glass of wine or the night cap, or words with friends before bed. that's a bad idea. >> turning that phone down is a great option in terms of silencing the phone, but then using that same device to play games or surf the internet or to do all kinds of other activities, you're not relaxing. the body's not allowed to wind down. you've got to remember that all electronics, your tv, computer, your phone emit a blue light which delays our internal body clock and keeps us wired and
awake. so the best idea is to really turn everything off, jump into bed and do something nonelectronic. number five, getting chores out of the way is a good idea, but you say a chore a day won't keep the doctor away. >> i know we're all guilty of this. we've got those lists, we've got to get them done and we obsess about them until they're done. however, walking into your house after a heavy-duty day and seeing a bunch of clutter, which is stressful, but trying to make yourself de-clutter in a short period of time is equally stressful, spikes your cortisol, drops your health and your health-fighting ability and is not a good idea. sometimes it's a better idea just to relax, put your feet up and don't worry about it. >> on your list you also say don't try to catch up on missed sleep over the weekend and also changing your pillow case weekly does not tackle the problem, you need to change the pillow. >> exactly. wash your pillows. >> thanks. i feel better. i hope you at home feel better. up next, skip the sandwiches at your next tailgate party, tim love is in "today's" kitchen,
♪ this morning in "today's" kitchen, chili marinated skewers, easy as one, two, three. from tim love, his new ft. worth, texas restaurant is the wood house smoke house which was named to bon appetit magazine's top 50 restaurants of 2012. congratulations. >> thank you. >> you are awesome. we, of course, expect nothing but the best from you. you're making skewers today. this is party of the tailgating theme. forget the hamburgers and hot dogs, let's step it up a notch. >> do something different. they're really easy to make. they have a lot of flavor, a lot of fun. it's different than hamburgers and hot dogs. >> and they're portable. >> that's right. >> we're starting with shrimp. >> you peel the shrimp. >> okay. >> i've got some -- >> onions. >> little bit of red onions, some cilantro. right here. >> i like how you made the
marinade with the shrimp in there. >> right. >> roasted garlic, red chile pepper. >> a lot of chili pepper. >> keep it hot. >> and then we've got some lime juice. >> okay. >> and these marinate for about 15 minutes. >> 15 minutes, that's it? >> yeah. >> that's easy. >> you don't want it sitting too long. >> right. >> as it sits, it'll color up. when you skewer shrimp, you know, natalie, i depend on you for one thing today, i don't know what else i'm going to do. >> i'm not a bon appetit top chef. >> if you were hanging out with me, you would be. look at how we join them together. >> that's a way to do it. >> and also you want to lay out the shrimp on the cutting board so when you skewer them, it goes right through the center. >> and not your finger. >> not your finger and also keeps them flat so when you put them on the grill they're even on the grill. if you skewer on top of each
other, they don't get as even. it's real quick, you know, with shrimp it takes about a minute and a half a side, especially after they set in the lime juice. >> you don't want them rubbery. >> as you're cooking the shrimp, you say to yourself, self, what do i do with the side burner on my grill? >> what do you do? >> little bit of reduction of orange juice and shallots and white wine. so we turn this up, add a little bit of cream to it. this is going to make you cheap for your butter sauce. we don't want to get too complicated with it. >> right. >> so real quickly you just stir in a little bit of butter. and this is a great sauce. >> delicious. >> -- for the shrimp. so just like this. very simple. and i know this is very odd for everybody at home, but i actually have one done. >> okay. through the magic of television. >> crazy how that happens. you can see how quickly -- >> it reduces. >> it multiplies into that
sauce, then add a little bit of salt. >> smells good. >> and over here, i've got pork skewers here, which are beautiful with a little barbecue sauce on top. side burner opportunity. >> right. >> and grilled beef skewers with onions and peppers on top. and i'm going to let you do that. >> do i drizzle on top? >> drizzle on top. act like a hero. >> i'm a hero. >> i knew you could do it. >> you know who is a real american hero, though? >> who? >> is dave goggins right now hard at work. >> he's working? >> he's working for the record. >> how are you feeling? >> i feel pretty good. >> you feel pretty good? am i distracting you in the zone? >> no, you're doing good. >> you've got your team here, peanut butter for protein. you need anything? >> i need people to donate money. >> we're going to donate. and i'm going to help you. right now we need people to donate. ready? okay.
